    No times on RTT yet, but 7.45am confirmed as departure time from Victoria. Also the tour stops at Cosford & Telford.

    Heard a rumour that the tour could be diverted via Crewe and Chester ! Hopefully it's incorrect, though still no times on RTT or OTT !

    That could make the Cosford set down a problem.

    Still nothing more on RTT but UK railtours have just reconfirmed Cosford as 12.11 so we shall see.

    I presume this will take the Stechford - Aston line rather than pass through New St ?.

    Confirmed timings only out this morning. You're correct, out via Stechford - Aston - Bescot.
    Return via Walsall, Sutton park, Arley to Nuneaton.

    Still nothing on RTT - is this not cutting it a bit fine. Almost makes me wonder if there is a problem.

    There's no problem, it's just taking a while for times to show up ! It does happen, albeit very rarely ! No doubt times will show up on the day, a pain if you're linesiding !

    The outline times are on UK Steam, the weather for linesiding is a bit grim. I might go down to Sears Crossing as it's only three miles from home.

    Three miles ! --- I may go as far as Oakengates, that's less than 1 ( and no wires ) :)
    For anyone who is coming to Shropshire tomorrow, wrap up warm - the forecast is cold and cloudy !
